Saturday's college basketball conference championship schedule includes four Power 6 finals matchups. Read on as we look at the conference championship odds.

For all the attention paid to the NCAA men's basketball tournament – and let's face it, the term "March Madness" is duly warranted – sports bettors who are new to the NCAA hoops scene would be wise to focus the same level of diligence on college basketball's conference title tournaments.

Sure, there might not be the same level of elation at correctly nailing one or more picks with the longest March Madness odds or Final Four odds possible, but there's plenty of money to be made in the lead-in to the Big One – especially when you consider that every game carries major significance to the teams involved.

Here's a look at the college basketball conference championship odds landscape for the NCAA's six major conferences, so you can make the most informed college basketball picks possible (odds are for the conference tournament winners):
